I came to the Full-time MBA at Smith School of Business because ...

I felt a personalized touch and deep connection during the application and admissions process with the Smith MBA at Queen’s University. The whole experience from Day One to the end was very customized and personal. Besides the fact that Smith MBA is ranked one of the top MBA programs in Canada with impressive employment results, I sensed the beginning of a spectacular MBA journey with a close connection to faculty, fellow students, and coaches.

My tips for an applicant would be to be prepared with a well-crafted resume and a cover letter as key documents in your application file. An authentic story may give you an advantage for your application. Be sure to practice for the Kira interview questions which will be used for the admissions process. For international applicants specifically, prepare to submit your undergraduate transcripts or educational certificate to the WES organization for evaluation. It could take you around twenty days to receive the assessment report.

If I could give myself some advice, one year ago, I would say: If you go to work every day using experiences instead of an eagerness to learn or if you feel bored or confused about your future, it may be time to think about an MBA, and the MBA at Smith School of Business is the best I could recommend. It is a world-class program designed to not only teach students academia (a full 360 degree of business acumen) but also a focus on the real-life business can through the team-based learning method. Students are equipped with not only vivid simulation of teamwork skills but we are also able to reflect on our performance as well. The more time I spend in this program, the more I understand myself, getting to know my strengths, weaknesses, my cultural intelligence, my emotional intelligence and my post-MBA goals — all of this after only thirty days in the Smith MBA.
